4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent stand in for the price, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought this tripod mount ring to use on the occasions that I am not using hand held. It works both holding the lens and attaching to my tripods via a mount I keep permanently attached to it for ease of use and speed. The Canon version is metal and this is plastic, however for the amount of usage I shall give it the prices just do not compare. If this ring starts to show signs of wear, allowing movement, I will be able to replace it many times before it cost anything like the canon.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Authoritative Wine Tome., 29 Nov. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Much moves on in the world of wine as the climate changes and up to date methods of production are introduced , or not. the distribution and qualities of various wines change. I have a copy of the 3rd addition of this Atlas (this is the 7th) and was surprised by the changes. It is important to be appraised or the current production, wine certainly moves on, not least with production growing in countries which had but a passing mention in the past. The book is very much a reference work, for both the enthusiast and the professional. It is well presented both in its content and physically. A book for both the coffee table and the reference selves. If you have an interest in where wines come from, what makes up the taste you are experiencing and why, get this book. If you have only a passing interest then perhaps it is a little too detailed technically it does not tell you what to buy, you have to draw your own conclusions on your own tastes. As a wine drinker, but certainly not an expert I am delighted to dip into this book to broader my knowledge of the subject and to open my mind to alternative grapes and areas of production.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted to have!, 29 Nov. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a reference book this is excellent, you will easily be able to find the section of products you wish to review and although you most probably will not be able to see an exact replica of your item, you will see similar. The book itself is a delight to have, is well presented and beautifully produced, indeed I currently have it on the coffee table and not on my reference selves. The amount of work that has gone into producing this reference work has to be praised not only for its breath of subject but also for the knowledge and pictorial presentation. If you are interested in antiques, buy or sell them or just collect, then this is nearing a must have work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Sturdy Stand., 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for and with my wife as a stand to take with her on field painting trips. It is fairly well made, although we did have difficulty with the first stand that arrived in that one of the legs jammed, however this was immediately replaced by the seller, so excellent back up. There is a good range of adjustments to allow fixing various sizes of canvas/boards and at different heights. Not only can it be used as a ground standing easel but it makes an excellent table top easel when required. The only slight draw back that this easel has, is that you cannot set the working surface to the horizontal, for this you have to buy another easel. A good purchase, providing a sturdy easel, which is easy to put up and down, at a reasonable price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Holds up pictures, 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought as an inexpensive stand to view photos and painting. This it does, however it is very light weight and flimsy, so be careful with its use. It does the job I want of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says at a good price., 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a computer with only usb3 ports, but not many. I have connected my backup and extra storage drives directly to fully use the fast speeds, I then ran out of connection for peripherals (printers/scanner/tablet/camera/cards/flash-DVD drives etc.) They are many hubs on the market, in a great range of prices, they all claim various ,must have functions. This little hub has worked well, so far, straight out of the box. I have had no trouble with any devices run through it. My operating system is OS X 10.8.5

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings., 25 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electronic Water Timer
We have a garden that requires a lot of watering and we go away often in the middle of dry weather. We have therefore tried most of the 'water timers'. This model is the least reliable of those we have had lasting for only one season, however the same has happened on timers costing twice as much. We have bought six timers in the last four years, and have now given up on them for every day watering. We will have to use one again when we next go away and at half the price of the competitors will most probably buy on of these. We however will count it as a one off cost of the trip and not rely on it once we get back.

Well written easy to read factual book. It is a must read if you are thinking of going into commercial wine making. It is also an attractive story which keeps you reading on. So not just for the viticulturist but a good general read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much tougher than some, 25 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My family use disposable gloves all the time. These are much tougher than a lot we have had before, they do not brake as you put them on and you can use them again if you wish to. Feeling through them is OK, obviously not up to surgical standards and they do make your hands hot and sweaty.
Good for purpose.
